The battle over the bombed out ruins of Bremen continues as the Fallschirmjager desperately try to hold out for another campaign turn. They've done enough to deny the British campaign victory, but can they hold on for one more game and bring this to a minor German victory? It's a big ask, it is April 1945 after all…..

Nice report and a great looking game, nice to see you are using 20mm figures, l remember the old Esci 'helping the wounded comrade'from my childhood, l might have to pick up a box!

Thanks. I used the Esci figures to make up wounded markers for both British and German leaders, obviously doing a bit of converting to make the German. You can see more details on my blog Wounded leaders for Chain of Command

Great campaign.
Would there be any modifications needed to using halftracks instead of Kangaroos?

The half tracks are much more vulnerable, so I'd play them as if they were Kangaroos. The Germans have a lot of anti tank weapons and so you don't want to use these too close to the front line. That said we didn't see them used that much in this campaign. For the support cost I think the British can chose some more useful options.

Thanks. Now I'll have to add this to the 5 other pint size CoC campaigns!
